Gwendolyn's Birthday Banner

I can't believe it, but in about a week Gwendolyn will be turning one year old!  It seems surreal to be talking about her first birthday party already.

I've been thinking about her party theme for a while, and it's changed a couple times.  Can I just say that it's a little challenging to think of a fun party theme when your baby's birthday is so close to Christmas?  It was hard to think of something that fits with the winter season that doesn't seem too Christmas-y.

I think I finally hit on a good theme though, and I'm excited to post about it after her birthday party in early January!   But in the meantime, here is a little sneak peek!

My blog friend Jenna runs the shop Elle Jay Party Decor, and she offered to send me a birthday banner to review!  I was so excited to have a nice, professional banner for Gwen's party!  I told her my theme and general color scheme, and she came up with this beautiful banner.

I think it goes perfectly with my theme for Gwen's party, and I love the snowflakes!  It's the perfect touch of winter without being Christmasy.  The ribbon and card stock are really sturdy, and I love it because I know I'll be able to use it again for some of her parties in the future!

If you are looking for a custom birthday banner for one of your kiddos, check out Jenna's Etsy shop!  She has so many cute, affordable banners, and she also does coordinating cupcake/cake toppers!  She also has some adorable Christmas items available, and if you order by Friday you can still get them by Christmas Eve!

She does beautiful, high-quality work, and is easy to work with.  I highly recommend ordering from her shop!

So that's one little piece of Gwen's party decor and theme - you'll have to wait for the rest!

Note: I received this birthday banner for free from Elle Jay Party Decor in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
